The pandemic revealed that our lives are propped up by women’s unpaid work in the home. Everyday Utopia argues that the ‘traditional’ nuclear family of father, mother and child is the root cause of gender inequality in the world today.Plato saw a place for all genders at the top of society; feminists in the French Revolution envisioned marriages founded in love rather than money or status; and cooperative living has been trialled in places as diverse as Scotland, Israel and the Soviet Union. These utopian ideas past and present, and from around the world, set out to challenge the domestic status quo.Times of crisis can be transformative – but we must be brave enough to act. This revolutionary book shows us how we can build a more equal, happier and better world.]]>
